Here is my finished New York Beauty…My plan was to make a mini wall quilt…..It looks good right…well the reason that I named this post BIG Bummer …. it’s the fact that some of these fabric’s are hand dyed.
I was happily paper piecing along when the notion of spraying the fabric with a little spray starch popped into my head. I had my pieces layed out on the ironing board and shot them with starch and watched in horror as the fabric bleed into the white.
At this point I decided that I wasn’t even going to finish it….I have since changed my mind. My throughts are that if I place it far enough away maybe no one will notice. Ha I might try some color catchers and see what happens. Maybe it will come out tie dyed……
…..until next time…..
I started making this quilt top in December. I was hoping that I would have finished it before I headed to MN for Christmas. As you can see it didn’t make it for the journey.
It’s mostly snowman fabric. My sister really likes blue so I had this in mind for her.
I made this Christmas Quilt and raffled it off with the family the last day that I was there. (That was really fun!) I used it the whole time I was there to stay snuggled up and warm. It’s been a really cold winter in MN this year with the polar vortex that’s been hitting the region – all winter long – They are so sick of it. That’s my brother Brad and his daughter Dakota snuggling with it. My sister Barb won it.
I guess I never posted the quilts that I took with me so here they are:
Swoon for my mom = She just celebrated her 80th birthday in February! It’s an 80 x 80 for her 80th. (Clever – right)
Log Cabin for Brad – Sorry for the dark photo
Snail’s Trail for Thomas – Another dark photo 😦 – He has no idea how much work this was. Although I know he loves it!
………….until next time…………..
